Volunteer Profile: Carol Krauss

Current CCT Role: Advancement Chair

Volunteer Since: 2009

How She Discovered CCT: Carol Krauss responded to an email from her alma mater, Tuck School at Dartmouth, about a small all-volunteer nonprofit that did consulting for other Boston nonprofits. Having worked in management consulting before business school and then afterwards for Arthur D. Little, this seemed like a natural fit.

First CCT Project: In her first project in 2009 for NEADS Dogs for Deaf and Disabled Americans, she connected so much with the organization that she became a long-term volunteer Weekend Puppy Raiser raising two dogs for veterans with PTSD.

CCT Experience: She then served as PM for The Philanthropic Initiative, joined the CCT Board in charge of Project Management, and ultimately served as Board Co-Chair for four years. Currently, Carol is in her final year of Board service and is in charge of CCT’s Development efforts, which are critically important to long-term sustainability. She is also sponsoring this year’s project for Household Goods. Apart from the projects she has served on, she is most proud of the accomplishments of the Board during her time in charge, including seeing Project Management become more systematized and recognized, instituting the Annual Appeal drive which funds the whole organization, and spearheading the effort to invest in a CRM system.

What You May Not Know About Carol: Carol is heavily committed to philanthropic causes including Social Venture Partners Boston, where she has served on the Investment Committee for five years, and she is President of a small foundation that supports tools, training, and skills for those looking to become independent and self-sufficient. When she is not applying her business acumen, she is using the creative side of her brain as a fine art photographer. For the past 20 years, she has maintained a studio at the Umbrella in Concord for teaching, creating, coaching, shooting, marketing, and consulting. Check her out at www.carolkrauss.com. Carol is also an avid single sculler keeping boats on the Charles River at Community Rowing and at her lake house in NH. She can be found almost any day in the warmer temps somewhere on the water sculling into the sunset.
